Healthy and Tasty Vegan Recipes
by Angela Smith
From time to time, I will post a vegan recipe on this blog and provide some nutritional information to assist readers who would like to adopt a more sustainable diet.
Today's recipe is Chili Rice Casserole. This recipe provides nearly 4x (4 times or 400%) the iron per serving than found in a serving of meat and slightly more protein than found in a serving of meat. In addition, it is a 99% fat free dish! One serving of this dish amount to approximately 425 calories and it is very satisfying!
Chili Rice Casserole
1 - 15 oz. Can of Vegan Chili (Hormel's Vegetarian Chili is vegan and other brands have vegetarian and vegan options as well.)
1 Cup of Uncooked Rice (2 Cups of Cooked Rice--I prefer white rice with this recipe)
1 & 1/3 Cup of Corn
Directions: Prepare rice per package instructions. Add Chili and Corn, stir until all ingredients are evenly distributed and mixed. Heat for 5-7 minutes on low/simmer. And, enjoy!
